The state was rocked by a series of gang-rapes.
In Meerut, a woman was gang-raped in a running car reportedly attached to some electronic channel.
The incident was reported from Medical police station in Meerut where a local woman working in a nursing home got friendly with a youth who on Monday took her in a car on a long drive. He was soon joined by two of his friends after which the three gang-raped the woman and also made a video of the act. They later pushed the woman out, threatening that if she lodged a report, they would upload the video and defame her.
Later, the victim lodged a report and with the help of the mobile phone location of one of the accused, the cops managed to nab two of the three rapists and also recovered the car in which the incident took place.
The Meerut police claimed that the car had a sticker of an electronic channel and it’s ID (mike having the logo of the channel) was also found lying inside. Further investigations are on. 
In Sitapur, a minor girl was reportedly gang-raped by five men, who recorded the act on the mobile phone and later uploaded the video on social media.
The police said the incident took place in Imalia Sultanpur village on September 7 when the girl was returning home from the market. Two youths, Sheebu and Nazim of a nearby village, dragged the girl to a nearby cane field where three others were also present and they all gang-raped her, the police said.
The girl told the police that the accused made a video of the offence on their mobile phones and threatened to kill her if she told anyone about the incident, the police added.
A case was subsequently registered against the five accused and one of them, Sheebu, was arrested on Monday.
Police teams are looking for the other accused,
Sitapur’s Superintendent of Police RP Singh and ASP (South) Rajiv Dixit, meanwhile, visited the village amid the tension over the gang-rape and deployed police force there as a precautionary measure.
In another incident, a horrifying video of a minor girl being gang-raped by two youths in Ballia district went viral on the internet. As soon as the video of the rape went viral on the social media, the police immediately took cognisance and launched a manhunt for the accused. Without getting into details of the case, it can be said that the video of the rape was filmed by some passer-by youths, a shocking revelation on the level of apathy towards horrific crimes.
The police have registered a case of rape and have also charged the youths who filmed the video under the IT Act. Search is on for the accused and the cops said that all resources had been deployed so that justice was realised soon.
